Hello

Hi!

Sorry for this absence, I’ve been revising hard for my a-levels, then followed by a holiday.

The Jehovah’s witnesses come round to my street everyday Tuesday. My dog jumped on the poor old religious lady, however she hasn’t been since, which is a plus.

Also, every summer I have an artist which I consistently listen to, till the end of summer, because I get bored and the music doesn’t ever fit my ‘Going back to college’ mood. This year, my artist has been my most shameful out of all those I listen to. Kanye West.

I’m not a rap fan particularly, though I am fond of Eminem, but I was playing Saints Row 3 and the song ‘Power’ came on and I was hooked. This lead to a Spotify artist stalk and now I’m truly obsessed with his tunes.

Though I don’t like Kanye’s personality, I do think the more of a dickhead you are, the more interesting the music is. Like John Lennon, was known for his aggression and occasional depressed outbursts and his lyrics are just genius.

I personally listen to anything, I love the more Alternative and Indie genre though. My favourite artists are people like Alt-J and Arcade Fire. I also adore the classics. I’ve always been a massive Beatles fan and when I was in high school, I was weirdly obsessed with Mick Jagger. However, nothing plucks my heartstrings more than the acoustic sound of Bob Dylan. He and Morrissey are both my favourite lyricists. They’re just geniuses!

I am truly sorry for this awful blog post, I didn’t have a particular subject I wanted to specifically talk about.. I just felt the urge to write.

Thanks for reading!

Day in the life..

Where I’m from in England isn’t particularly beautiful. It’s statistically known for its high crime and it’s general roughness. Today for example, I was waiting for my bus at the station near to where I live and some old dude came towards me, waddling. It’s bad to form your opinions on someone based on their first impressions but this dude was clearly drunk. He screamed “DUCK!” at me. A term used in my city, which is a city nickname for the locals.. (EG  – Hello, duck). It sounds cute but it really isn’t. He asked me what I thought about the EU Referendum. He seemed really pissed on alcohol and the fact that we’ve left. I told him I wanted to remain and then he tried to put his arm round me and talk about the economy. He repeated himself mindless times. Also, now I’m being barricaded in by two old Jehovah’s Witnesses and I need to leave for college. They keep banging on my door and putting their hands through the flap in which mailmen put your post through (Don’t know the specific term for it). My Mum left simply minutes before I am to leave and she rang me soon as she left saying “DON’T OPEN THE DOOR!”. That, of course, led me to panic and think this was the last hour of my life. I asked why and she “Two old Jehovah’s Witnesses are going round the street”. Being the awkward person I am, and to avoid them glaring at me through my windows, whilst I watch Orange Is The New Black on TV in the Living room and grabbed my dog and made a mistake to my bedroom. They won’t see me up here.

Favourite TV Shows:

Being as I am extremely picky in terms of my TV shows and my inner-pessimist finds the flaws in everything, I thought I’d play critic and create a top 5 TV Shows list, explaining what I love about them. I genuinely love writing lists for fun and ranking my interests, which my friends define to be boring. But oh well..

BTW – This is my own personal opinion, I haven’t watched some major shows like ‘The Walking Dead’ just yet, and this is my first post so please be nice 🙂

1) Game of Thrones – All time fav! Every aspect is literally perfection! From the dialogue to the complex structure of each character. You can clearly see every part of GOT has been carefully thought out, and each character brings out they’re own individuality which we could link to ourselves. For those who don’t know what GOT is, in simple terms, it’s simply a fantasy story about the war of royal families who fight for several purposes mainly to gain that intimidating Iron Throne. Family members turn against each other, or may even have been separated which creates a whole new to story plot line for us. Each series gets better and better, with major shocks, due to it’s unpredictability. BTW – I’m house Lannister.

2) Breaking Bad – Almost on par with my no. 1. Breaking Bad is about a dull chemistry teacher (Walter White) who has cancer, which leads to him working with his previous chemistry student and major druggy; Jesse Pinkman in the meth industry to gain those helpful dollars. A huge fav of mine simply because of the huge character development of Walter White. He seems so simplistic to begin with but later becomes one of the greatest fictional badasses on the planet, like wtf. The soundtrack is fucking cool is well if you’re into that darker alternative, which I am.

3) Fargo – In England, this show is not particularly well known, so I’m not certain whether this applies to other countries also, but I love Fargo. A great TV show which is so gripping. S2E9 – I don’t think I’ve shouted at a TV screen so much in my life! It’s weirdly quirky, yet mixed with badass at the same time. Also, each character again, is extremely individualised and complex. I defo recommend to those who haven’t seen it yet and running out of TV shows to waste your life on.

4) Peaky Blinders – Like Fargo, I’m not sure how popular this is in other countries, but unlike Fargo it’s extremely popular in England. It’s a BBC show set during the aftermath of WW1. The story follows around the gang which we grow to love called ‘Peaky Blinders’. It’s soundtrack is brilliant and the acting is so fucking awesome! Defo worth the watch to those who’ve never heard of the name. It’s not your usual BBC period drama that your Mum probably watches updates their friends who’ve missed an episode on, it goes beyond BBC standards! My only flaw is that it’s not for those who have TV on in the background while they scroll through their Facebook feed on their phone (I am awful for this). You need to focus on every episode.

5) IT Crowd – This is a classic British comedy show for those who love that good old British wit. The show is revolved around the characters – Moss, Roy and Jen, who work in the IT department which is looked highly down upon by the rest of the business (Reynolm Industries). You’ll instantly fall for Moss, who is the stereotypical IT nerd, who’s as pure as they come, but so lovable that you want to protect him from all the sexual characters they frequently surround him, he has the most hilarious dialogue – “I came here to drink milk and kick ass… And I’ve just finished my milk.”. Please watch this show! 🙂
